The Olyset Net
Ever since Reister (or is it Reyster) Langit died from cerebral malaria after covering a news story in Palawan, people have been more wary of mosquitoes. What's it with mosquitoes and the diseases they bring like malaria and dengue? I guess we humans have disturbed something in the over-all balance of things that nature gets back at us with such sicknesses.
My now 8-year old son contracted dengue when he was 2 years old. He was hospitalized for about a week and had to receive a blood transfusion at some point. It was quite worrisome at that time and of course, we wish all kids could be free from such diseases.
I was reading the newspapers yesterday when I came across the ad for Olyset Net. It is advertised to protect our homes from dengue and malaria and is said to be best for windows and door screens. With the onset of the rainy season, families may want to take extra precaution. I don't know how effective this product is, or how much it costs but it may be worth checking out.
According to the ad, the Olyset Net is a protective net which kills mosquitoes on contact. It is said to be safe to use and is reportedly approved by the World Health Organization. It was also said to be featured in the December 6, 2004 issue of time as one of the Most Amazing Inventions of 2004.
Want to check this product out? It is distributed in the Philippines by Leads. They are located at Unit 1103 Paragon Plaza, Edsa cor. Reliance St. Mandaluyong City. Phone number is +632 687-90-10. The manufacturer is Sumitomo Chemical Co. Ltd. This is not an endorsement nor a recommendation to buy (sounds like a credit rating!). It is just a sharing of information on what is out in the market. If you've tried it and it works, please write us and let us know. If it does not work too -- write us also.
May all our homes be safe. :-)[By Angelica Viloria | Thursday, June 9, 2005]
